“Bee beard” tests man’s patience
Toronto was all abuzz on Thursday (August 31) as a new “bee beard” record was set by Juan Carlos Noguez Ortiz. Ortiz works at a bee honey farm in Ontario. He’s just claimed the Guinness World record for sitting for sitting for 61 minutes with his face blanketed by bees, besting the previous record by almost eight minutes.
According to Ortiz, he’s a novice at this sort of stunt, having tried it only twice before setting the record. Ortiz sat calmly during the record, even when getting stung twice, remaining still as he had the bees brushed off him following the record setting stunt.
